Well you heard it here folks, the bots early game gold income was nerfed by AGS so the new strategy is farming chaos dungeons for mats to either funnel to a main acc/sell for gold.
AGS can’t nerf chaos dungeon drops since that would harm the legitimate player and they cannot make the drops untradeable as that is a major market for legit players as well and would be a hinderance to upgrading alts.
As a side note, it’s probably a great time to release honing buffs as well as introduce the missing honing material sources since material prices will tank soon as more of these bots get into T3.
On the honing rates it’s also a question of demand. I mean there is a lot of demand for illicit gold due to the honing system. That wasn’t an issue in the design of the game because in KR you need SSN equivalent to play, so no bots, so it wasn’t anti-bot in its design. Instead, the design is one that places an incredibly heavy emphasis on in-game currency – like a greater emphasis on in-game currency than any PvE MMO I have ever seen. In that context there is going to be a lot of demand, and as long as there is demand, we will get pics like this one. All the ban waves in the world can’t stop it really.
I feel like it is actually not a bad thing since they are increasing the supply of mats and making them cheaper. This makes upgrading more accessible for players in general since Amazon isn’t releasing the honing buffs any time soon. Though I can see it hurting the gold income of some players, but it’s going to happen regardless of the bots. Tier 3 mats are so overpriced currently, it would be nice to see drastic changes
There already are drastic changes in t3 mats, they cost less and less every week as someone said previously some already made it to t3 and farming. It’s a matter of time before t3 honing mats cost so little that all of us can actually afford to do argos (which is actually not a bad thing when you consider)
No need to worry there is a fix coming in soon. So many bots created and such a bad naming system, surely in a matter of days every single character combination will be used up and no more names will be able to be created…
